? what role will the u.s. play? and did the u.n. vote come too late to stop gadhafi? will gadhafi fight for the death or accept some kind of deal. answer those questions as we prepare to fight in a third muslim country. and japanese authorities have raised the assessment of a nuclear disaster to a five -- that's three mile island level on a seven-point scale and they now more or less at mitt they're overwhelmed. they're employing a throw against the wall and see what sticks approach in the nuclear commission. it says it can take weeks to get this thing under control. score one for the unions in wisconsin. the judge has temporarily blocked the new law shrinking collective bargaining rights in that state. wow, democrats hope this is the first of many obstacles. republicans say, it's just a speed bump, check it out. let me finish with libya. we know how we're getting in. but do you have any idea how we're going to get out? we start on libya. richard engle is joining us from cairo. thank you, richard, give us a sense of what's happening as the u.n. begins to take action. what is the conditi
congress to continue to be involved. nancy pelosi said u.s. action will be strengthened by consultation with congress. last week a lot of them spoke under the democratic side were critical of president obama for not briefing congress in regards to what the mission was in libya. they feel on the democratic side more aware of what that is and want to be briefed regularly. secretary of state hillary clinton will be beyond with the foreign relations committee. they expect a lot of questions to her, but in terms of setting a precedent for the democratic party to believe in, president obama did accomplish that goal. he did not satisfy republicans at all. one interesting caveat i will say, senator john mccain, the president's opponent actually said he enjoyed hearing president obama clearly state what the policy was in libya. he remained shall we say unaware of how gadhafi would be removeed fr per wldikmo iorti outh, t ppti o what the president's actions were there. john mccain maybe going back to the maverick style by being more supportive of president obama than his conference there. >> the
in libya, what's the end game, how do we get out? the role the u.s. will play from here on out and how important is it that gadhafi goes. and how did we wind up fighting in a country that even the country's own defense secretary on sunday said is not a vital u.s. interest. tonight, we'll look at what the president needs to say and the big stakes for him politically in lya if the effort for him goes bad. then we'll bring the president's speech live from the national war college here inform washington, d.c. let's begin with andrea mitch l mitchell. and of course, the huffington post's howard fineman who is an msnbc political analyst. what must the president say? here's a couple of clips. >> when someone like gadhafi threatens a bloodbath that could destabilize an entire region and when the international community is prepared to come together to save many thousands of lives, then it's in our national interest to act. >> that was the radio address on saturday. here's what he said in south america last week about why we're there. >> our military action is in support of an international man

in the downfall of the soviet union. but speaking as an engineer, i'm proud to say a lot of u.s. navy personnel stepped up to the plate right after the three mile island accident and improved safety of the nuclear system in the united states. the design of that nuclear reactor at three mile island was much, much better than at chernobyl. >> we have 31 designed nuclear plants in the united states that are similar to the one over at fukushima right now, the one causing the great concern right now. do you think we have a better backup system than they do? they don't have a good one, because it was undermined by the tsunami. it affected the battery backup to the diesel system, none of it worked. they ended up putting in seawater, which is destroying their plant, as an extreme measure. how are we in that regard? in terms of nuclear diesel backup, battery backup, do we have all these backup systems? >> we do. and there are parts of the united states and california where there are two nuclear plants at diablo canyon and san aknow frey where concerns have been raised about size eismic activity. in
an explosion last night u.s. time actually damaged the inner steel containment vessel. containers are crucial in maintaining safety of the fuel. a breach reaches the possibility of a full blown meltdown. a fire broke out at reactor number four and could be a problem if spent fuel at that site becomes exposed. let me ask you about the threat to people. let me get really basic here. the threat to human bodies of radiation. what is it? >> it damages -- if large doses it can cause sickness. it's called radiation sickness. you can damage the blood. you can vomit and in larger doses you can actually die and so you have to be very careful to reduce the risk and that's really what the workers face. that's why the site was evacuated. the dose rate got so high yesterday that it wasn't safe to stay there and so only essential personnel were kept there. less radiation goes out to the public outside of the site and there's an evacuation zone but the problem that the public is going to face over time is the radiation that's been emitted and got forbid if there's more can get into the food chain for example
out by the u.s. military. who talked president obama into fighting in a country where we have no vital interest in? are we trying to avoid another rwanda rwanda? are we protecting civilians or are we taking sides? have we offered gadhafi a way out? would we allow him to survive as the king of tripoli, if you will? most important, what is the end and how does it end and where does it end? a report from libya and try to figure out what turned president obama around on this issue. also, the politics. the president is getting hit as you might expect from the right for waiting too long and from the left for doing it at all. how about those who haven't said it but will that he's not doing enough. we'll let both sides, all sides, take their swings tonight. >>> and what to make out of the old arab league that begged us to come into this fight and is now apparently having second thoughts. the view from the street in the arab world tonight. >>> plus the other huge story out of japan. the latest news from japan is not encouraging. smoke out of the two reactors forced workers out of the area today

are giving them unconditional military support. their only strategy seems to be allow the u.s. and other military powers to scorch the earth and destroy gadhafi's military so that they can make a very slow advance toward tripoli. they do see there was a humanitarian element to this because if gadhafi forces had been allowed to enter benghazi or tobruk there could have been massacres but now they think this rebel movement which is leaderless and disorganized believes it has been recognized and given the full support of the united states military. >> are we giving arms of any kind, small arms, artillery, armor, what are we giving to the rebels? anything? >> reporter: i've been no indication that we're giving the rebels anything. they seem to be holding weapons that they seized from the units of gadhafi that were destroyed by the americans. they are armed with just pocket knives sometimes. i saw a rebel today and i was shocked by this. he was carrying a pistol and he was holding it in his hand swinging it around like in an old western movie and the rebels are in two groups. there are volunt

and the west coast of the u.s., but there was no real damage. plus, so what's that what it was. here's what wisconsin's senate majority leader said. quote, if we win this battle and the money is not there under the union, certainly what you're going to find is president obama's going to have a much more difficult time getting elected and winning the state of wisconsin. well, there you have it in black and white. but for democrats to use that little thought from that senate leader as a rallying cry in 2012. they've admitted it's about politics, about beating the president. also, gas lines from republicans. first, haley barbour suggested that president obama engineer price increases to get americans to drive smaller cars and take trains, then john boehner blamed the president saying he's blocking energy production. apparently, mr. boehner never heard of libya. you have to wonder what's causing all the nonsense from the republicans. everything these republicans are saying is a particular kind of language. everything is being said between now and early next year is about the iowa caucuses. the
of the strongest anywhere on record ever. we've got the latest from japan and from experts here in america. the u.s. is offering to help with rescue and air lift operations. the quake led to tsunami warnings in hawaii, alaska and the west coast of the u.s., but there was no real damage. plus -- so that's what it was. here's what a wisconsin senate majority leader told fox news about the battle against unions out there. quote, if we win this battle and the money is not there under the auspices of the unions certainly what you're going to find is president obama is going to have a much more different time getting elected and winning the state of wisconsin. there you have it in black and white. look for democrats to use wisconsin as a rallying cry in 2012. also, gas lines from republicans. first haley barbour suggested president obama engineered price increases in order to get americans to drive smaller cars and take trains. then john boehner blamed with the president saying, he's blocking energy production. apparently mr. boehner never heard of libya. what's behind the latest nonsense. remember, ever
of the people. from the start, president obama has stressed the role of the u.s. military would be limited in time and scope. our mission has been to use america's unique capabilities to create the conditions for the no-fly zone and to assist in meeting urgent humanitarian needs. and as expected, we're already seeing a significant reduction in the number of u.s. planes involved in operations, as the number of planes from other countries increasen numbers. today, we are taking the next step. we have agreed along with our nato allies to transition command and control for the no-fly zone over libya to nato. all have authorized military authorities to develop an operions plan for nato to take onhe bad cvian protection mission under resolution 1973. nato is well suited to coordinating this international effort, and ensuring that all participating nations are working effectively together toward our shared goals. this coalition includes countries beyond nato, including arab partner, and we expect all of them to be providing important political guidance going forward. we have always said that arab
